Liz Ogbu on Social Equity in Sustainability
Join the U.S. Green Building Council Northern California Chapter – Rising Leaders Committee (USGBC NCC RLC) for a discussion with industry leader, Liz Ogbu, on the role of community engagement and social equity in the field of sustainable design.
Liz Ogbu, founder and principal of Studio O, will be sharing her insights on and experience with social equity. A designer, urbanist, and social innovator, Liz is an expert on sustainable design and spatial innovation in challenged urban environments globally. Studio O is a multidisciplinary innovation practice that works globally with communities in need by using the power of design to catalyze sustained social impact.
Members of the Rising Leaders Committee will engage Liz in a thoughtful discussion about her story and path to architecture, community organizing, and the intersection of equity and sustainability. You will come away with knowledge on spatial justice, how it can be executed professionally in the AEC industry, and how to create social change through design. Through thoughtful exploration from the lens of an emerging professional, Liz will advise and inspire ways to communicate in the workplace about the interconnections of sustainability and equity.
